The graphite plugin seems to be fine, but we need more infos's.

here is an example of our plugin:

LoadPlugin write_graphite

Host "hostname-relay"
Port "xxxxx"
StoreRates false
AlwaysAppendDS false
EscapeCharacter "."
SeparateInstances true

Did you try to get some data into your indexer?
At your splunk server you have to configure data inputs for your specific collectd port. ( TCP)

I opened the port as well on the indexer.
telnet 52.33.140.2 10001
Trying 52.33.140.2...
Connected to 52.33.140.2.
Escape character is '^]'.

This is the output from the indexer
/opt/splunk/bin/splunk enable listen 10001 -auth admin:abc123
Configuration for port 10001 already exists.

netstat -anp | grep 10001
tcp 0 0 0.0.0.0:10001 0.0.0.0:* LISTEN 23735/splunkd

Yes, i tried to get the data into the index.
LoadPlugin cpu
LoadPlugin df
And here is the error msg on the client machine,
forwarder collectd[21107]: write_graphite plugin: send to 52.33.140.2:10001 (tcp) failed with status -1 (Broken pipe)

Go to the app page on splunkbase, hit the big green VISIT SITE button, get redirected to https://github.com/nexinto/collectd and follow instructions there.

I followed the instruction, but no luck. I installed the collectd in my indexer as well as on client machine. On indexer i allowed the port 10001 as well. But i am gettting the following error on the client.
Mar 15 01:30:16 forwarder collectd[21107]: write_graphite plugin: send to 52.33.140.2:10001 (tcp) failed with status -1 (Broken pipe)

My collectd.conf
Plugin write_graphite

Host "52.33.140.2"          # here goes the splunk indexer / tcp input
Port "10001"
Protocol "tcp"

On Linux try netcat to confirm your connection is open
or
telnet 52.33.140.2 10001

Also your collectd.conf does not look like it is in the XML format shown in the readme

collectd.conf:




Host "127.0.0.1" # log to the localhost
Port "5000"
Protocol "tcp"

There is the connection, i verified with the telnet. Its in xml format as well.

Host "52.33.140.2"
Port 10001
 Protocol "tcp"
